We boarded the yacht at Pier 59 (NOT 61 as ticket may indicate) and were greeted by the Captain Mary Pat and her 2 assistants. There were complimentary peanuts and unlimited non alcoholic beverages. I had wonderful Mango Tea. They gave us a poker chip for an alcoholic beverage, however I didn't use mine. We cruised around Battery Park up the East RIver to just below the Empite State Building. Turned around and cruised back to Pier 59. There were nice illustrated books to reference the buildings we passed by. The 2 bathrooms were impeccable and nicely decorated. The crew was extremely nice and the yacht was beautiful. Perfect for an hour and a half cruise. A very friendly lady named Dorothy greeted us and gave us our boarding passes.
Experience New York like you never have before by leaving the noise of city street life behind. Sit back and enjoy the luxurious 360-degree view of the island from the open decks of this gorgeous, 80-foot, '20s-style yacht.
Highlights on this 90-minute cruise include:
- Battery Park, South Street Seaport and the Financial District
- Governors Island, The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
- Parts of Brooklyn, Queens and the New York City skyline
- The Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges of the East River
The spectacular glassed-in observatory on the back deck is equipped with cushioned seating around conversation-friendly tables. It’s heated in the winter and air-conditioned in the summer, and provides stunning, panoramic views, all within climate-controlled comfort.
One beer, wine, champagne, soda or water is included. Mixed drinks are available for purchase, and you are welcome to bring a small picnic on board.
Cruise runs rain or shine.
